Pregnancy Options and Post-Abortion Counselling
Seeking information or support around a pregnancy decision or outcome?
You can call or text our Access Line to connect with one of our peer support staff or volunteers and discuss your thoughts, feelings and next steps around all of your pregnancy options - abortion, adoption, and parenting. The choice is yours, and we’re here to support you however we can – by providing information, referrals, and a compassionate unbiased ear to hear you out and talk things through.
Are my calls / texts confidential?
Yes! Everything you share with us is completely confidential. If you have an unblocked phone number, we will be able to see your phone number when you call or text us. This information is not recorded. We will only return phone calls from voicemails that include explicit permission for us to call back.
